Also, I enjoy making video reviews for mods for Half-Life and Half-Life 2, so let me know if you want me to review one and I'll fit it in when I can.

For those who care, this is why I tend to dismiss mash up, mess up and retexture mods for Half-Life.

My primary argument is that it's not a mod, it's not even an expansion. It's Half-Life with coat of paint. In some cases I can hold up my hands on honestly say that it is a particularly well done coat of paint.

My issue is, as much as I love Half-Life, I've been playing it for over 15 years. I've seen it all. I won't enjoy it any more by running through the same game with new sounds or models. I definitely won't enjoy playing through something that you think is hilarious (speaking specifically about mess up mods now).

That said, I started editing Half-Life skins and sounds back in the day, it's how I got started with making changes to the base game. I'm not saying stop, by all means stick with it, but you don't have to put it online. If you do, don't be surprised if you get backlash from a few people.

I have made thousands of tweaks to Half-Life through the years and you won't find any of them online. They were purely for MY amusement. A lot of it would make me cringe if I look back at it today.

Can you possibly do a rereview of Underhell? At least do a review of chapter 1?

Hello Urby, I forgot to say thank you for the good luck part of your message when I replied to it earlier, if you have examples of good character customisation implementations that you think we should be familiar with please let us know.

These mod's arent mine but do you think you can do a review of them?

Point of View: Moddb.com
Azure Sheep: Moddb.com
Half-Life Invasion: Moddb.com
Half-Life: Visitors: Moddb.com

They are classics IMO and i would like to hear your thoughts on them. :)

*I recommend you play Invasion on the WON version of Half Life or XASH 3D Because it doesn't work well on the steam version of Half Life*

Sadly I don't have access to the WON version of Half-Life but I'll see what I can do regarding Xash 3D. They are indeed classic mods and I would gladly do a review of each. I don't have a lot of time at them moment what with The Core in development and life in general, but I'll certainly try. :)

Hey mate!

Probably in the next few days I possibly become a GameBanana moderator, so after your mod release (if you're gonna release the "The Core SDK", and if you agree of course), I'm gonna create the "The Core" cathegory on GB to make people able to upload any custom content. :)

You deserve it. ;)
